If your niece in the village needs school fees maybe you don’t need to bring her to Kampala to study in Greenhill. Instead find the best school in the village and pay her tuition so that she can study from there. This way you manage the expense and you don’t generate more expenses for yourself like shuttle, feeding, medical bills, etc. You also reduce the sense of entitlement from your relatives. Plus you get to help more people as the school fees in Greenhill can educate way more people in the village.
It also allows allows you to enjoy some peace and quiet in your home. This post was inspired by a random conversation with a friend and the views expressed are not necessarily the views of the author!
